     - Use press-and-drag in the list of Input Files, rather than press-and-release on each file.  While the mouse button is held down, most of the computation is skipped so you can quickly zero in on the correct file before releasing the mouse button.     - Use press-and-drag in the list of Input Files, rather than press-and-release on each file.  While the mouse button is held down, most of the computation is skipped so you can quickly zero in on the correct file before releasing the mouse button.
     - Hover over either image window, then press and hold the Shift key while using the mousewheel, up/down arrow keys, or press-and-drag with the mouse.  As long as Shift is held down, most of the computation is skipped so you can quickly zero in on the correct file before releasing the Shift key.  If you have a deep stack, probably press-and-drag with the mouse will be faster because it allows skipping across input files, while using the mousewheel or up/down arrow keys will require looking at every image.     - Hover over either image window, then press and hold the Shift key while using the mousewheel, up/down arrow keys, or press-and-drag with the mouse.  As long as Shift is held down, most of the computation is skipped so you can quickly zero in on the correct file before releasing the Shift key.  If you have a deep stack, probably press-and-drag with the mouse will be faster because it allows skipping across input files, while using the mousewheel or up/down arrow keys will require looking at every image.

   * ** If possible, use the advanced brush types**, such as "Pixels".  Compared to the default "Details" brush, the advanced brushes do a lot less computation to prepare each source image when it is finally selected.  Tradeoffs are that (1) the default Details brush is better at doing seamless integration, and (2) the advanced brushes are "Pro-only" features that require Prosumer or Professional licenses for long term use.  You'll have to experiment to figure out which is better overall for your situation.   * ** If possible, use the advanced brush types**, such as "Pixels".  Compared to the default "Details" brush, the advanced brushes do a lot less computation to prepare each source image when it is finally selected.  Tradeoffs are that (1) the default Details brush is better at doing seamless integration, and (2) the advanced brushes are "Pro-only" features that require Prosumer or Professional licenses for long term use.  You'll have to experiment to figure out which is better overall for your situation.
